Portraits of a Young Orphan Jewish Girl from Eastern-Europe (2003) is a very short film, a confirmation of the possibility of creating cinematic masterpieces with an non-existent budget. The charming portrait of this young girl is sublimated with incessant tender zooms in and out on her face and her discreet smile, to accordion music. It’s a portrait-film, a dream-like film that has no contemporary equivalent to its formal and symbolic content. It is not a declaration of love, but a brief moment of admiration for beauty and the noble side of human nature.
